Weekend plans!

My weekend plans just arrived!  Orchard expansion pack! I ordered these weeks ago, knowing they would ship in spring when the temps warmed.  They arrived today!  So excited to (hopefully) expand the season of fresh homegrown produce here. I bought an Early pear (the pear tree in my orchard is a late pear), an early ripening apple and two winter ripening apples (all my apples are fall apples).  And I ordered my favorite apple tree ever-Empire. Born and raised Northern NYer, Empires have long been my favorite. They aren't easy to find in Maine! Someday I hope to have an abundance. 
This will bring my orchard total to: 1 peach, 2 pear, 2 plum, 1 cherry tree & 2 cherry bushes, 2 pear (early and late), 11 apples (early, mid, late). Plus oodles of elderberries, concord grapes, raspberries, blueberries and strawberries.  Hard to believe this was all field a decade ago!
